Symmetrical anthracene derivatives with bulky units connected to the anthracene frame through an ethynyl bridge were synthesized and their electrochemical, photophysical, and electrical properties were characterized. The compounds were yellowish-orange emitters with high thermal stability, had excellent solubility in most organic solvents, and very high photoluminescence quantum yield in solution.
